Urban Policy Interventions to Reduce Traffic Emissions and Traffic-Related Air Pollution: A Systematic Evidence Map

There is limited evidence available on urban-level policy interventions that may mitigate traffic-related emissions and traffic-related air pollution. Few previous articles review policy interventions to mitigate traffic-related emissions and/or air pollution, and even fewer focus on urban-level policy interventions despite the emergence of urban areas as the hot spots for human exposures and associated disease. This project will systematically review studies of urban-level policy interventions aimed toward mitigating traffic emissions and traffic-related air pollution, and it will consider multiple traffic-related air pollutants, rather than just one or two as previous reviews have done. It will consider international studies, therefore presenting a more complete coverage and allowing the research team and others to learn from other countries and assess the transferability of more progressive or unusual policies that may not be implemented in specific regions of the world. The results of the project will be housed in an accessible and open-access database, therefore promoting technology transfer and knowledge translation.
